Piano Lesson No. 1c: Pitch Names on a Staff

F-A-C-E / E-G-B-D-F or
A-C-E-G / G-B-D-F-A


i'm pretty sure you've encoutered these letters na parang combination ng lock sa cellfone hahaha. pero sa mga mas nakakaraming nalilito kung para saan ba itong mga letrang ito... ito'y mga pangalan lamang na in-assign sa lines and spaces ng isang staff... these same names ang ginagamit natin sa mga notes nakalagay sa isang staff.






figure 1c.1
G-staff 4 spaces



figure 1c.2
G-staff 5 lines



figure 1c.3
F-staff 4 spaces



figure 1c.4
F-staff 5 lines

ang staff ay composed ng 5 lines ( 4 spaces ) at para madaling matandaan pinangalanan sila gamit ang 7 letters ng alphabet: A B C D E F G. since ang piano or keyboard kung mapapansin ninyo ay may pattern ( sige tignan mo ang piano keys ) minabuti nalang na gamitin ang first 7 letters ng alphabet kesa gamitin ang 26 letters at magimbento pa ng karagdagang alphabet para lang mapunan ang 88 keys ng piano/keyboard! haha common sense na lang hindi na kelangan ng historical background sus makakalbo lang ako... may explanations yan pero masasayang lang ang dendrites ko pag inexplain ko pa dahil masyadong profound! lalz


o isa pang pilosopong tanong:

kung ang alphabet nagstart sa ABCDEFG.... bakit dito sa music CDEFGAB?

o sige na matahimik ka lang papatulan ko yang tanong na yan... lalz well, starting on an A will give a natural minor scale ( music theory wise... ) at dahil nasa beginners stage nga tayo ngayon mas madaling talakayin muna ang scale na walang accidentals ( e.g. sharps and flats ) at ito nga po ay ang C Major Scale ( oh nosebleed ka na noh... hayaan mo't may topic din about sa Scales, darating tayo diyan! ^_^v )



Question: what's the difference between C D E F G A B C and DO RE MI FA SOL LA TI(or SI) DO?
Answer:
DO RE MI FA SOL LA TI( or Si ) DO are the sol fa or syllable names or can be called as their singing names. we sing the notes with these syllable names. you use these to learn how to sing a piece and get your pitches correct.. C D E F G A B are the pitch names... you do sol fa for the notes of a piece to learn the pitches..



now that you know the locations, positions and names of the corresponding keys, we'll now move on to Piano Lesson no. 2a: How to Read Notes?
